Fiat will produce Chrysler vehicles at Bertone plant in Italy

2011 Chrysler 300C

Last month, Fiat won approval to purchase Carrozzeria Bertone. The automaker will now use the Bertone plant in Italy to build Chryslers, according to Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne.

Marchionne said that Chrysler’s new 5-year post bankruptcy business plan will be released in November, reports Automotive News. He declined to reveal which Chrysler vehicles will be built at the plant in Grugliasco.

Sources say that the factory will resume production in late 2011 and will produce the replacement for the European version of the Chrysler 300C. The sedan is scheduled to launch in the U.S. in early 2011.
